“I’m a hog for you, baby.
Can’t get enough of your love.
When I go to sleep at night
That’s what I’m dreaming of.
One little piggie went to London.
One little piggie went to Hong Kong.
This little piggie’s
Comin’ over to your house
Wee wee wee be makin’ whoopee
Cookin’ that cracklin’
Makin’ sweet lovin’ bacon
All night long.
One little piggie ate pizza.
One little piggie ate potato chips.
This little piggie’s
Comin’ over your house, mamma.
Gonna level with your sweet lips.”

    1. All surviving the current pestilence
      ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸคžThanks for enquiring, your
      Royal Fieriness ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž
      I have been counting the lock down
      days of your absence โŒš๐Ÿ˜ฟ ๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ

      1. Sigh…me too.
        I think I’ll be back beginning of September. I posted a little poem today, it was needed!
        Happy to hear the clan is well.
        Miss being here writing and just being Me โค๏ธ

      2. Your poetry inspires me, Fiery.
        Mostly I’m mute and sedentary,
        just like that Bob Dylan song …

        Whatโ€™s the matter with me
        I donโ€™t have much to say
        Daylight sneaking through the window
        And Iโ€™m still in this all-night cafรฉ
        Walking to and fro beneath the moon
        Out to where the trucks are rolling slow
        To sit down on this bank of sand
        And watch the river flow ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      3. I love that… He always knew just what people with love in their hearts needed to hear๐Ÿ’œ
        I adore that I inspire you.
        I’ve always felt there’s something Muse-y about me

      4. You certainly qualify as a modern day
        Erato, Muse of love poetry. Though
        you have penned some classics, which
        is more down to Calliope, Muse of
        heroic or epic poetry. She’s portrayed
        in Greek mythology holding a writing
        tablet. So she wrote her own original
        material, not just inspiring it โ˜‘๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. Apart from going stir crazy . . .
      I couldn’t be better, thanks Basilike.
      We’re in extreme lock down here in
      southern Winterland Antarctica ๐Ÿ”’
      The Virus snuck out of the Quantine
      Hotel, and is now running amok ๐Ÿ˜ท
      I should’ve headed off to Santorini
      when I had the chance โœˆ๏ธ
      Just my luck ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ˜ข
      We could be sipping dry martinis
      by the Aegean ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ
      But I can still dream ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ค

  1. I had never heard this song before that I know of…
    fun to study the original and your mods.
    I like your revised last line a lot. :)))
    Seeing the music vid brought it to life;
    and I’m loving the washboard too ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŽถ
    So, in love’s edu-kitchen, David,
    one can be ever grateful to you. ;))
    p.s. thanks for your visit
    to some cookin’ posts,
    which definitely elevated
    my recipe-makin’ mood. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒคโœ๏ธ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you in the extreme, Lia
      Queen of Poetic Cuisine ๐Ÿ‘ธ ๐Ÿ™
      They say an army marches on it’s
      stomach. If you want it to go faster
      cook up some pasta ๐Ÿœ ๐Ÿ˜Ž
      Actually, I first heard that song
      on a podcast hosted by Bob Dylan!
      He was playing all his favourite
      songs about food ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒฎ

      1. Aw cool! Love the process note, amazing! Did not know Dylan had a podcast. Sweet, or perhaps savoury, I mean!
        And thanks so kindly for the queenly moniker, I’ll be sure to wear that crown while cooking. ;)) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•

  2. Blues and zydeco gotta a love it. I know CJ Chenier he loved his daddy and wonderfully tryโ€™s to fill those big shoes he left behind. I enjoyed the modified version. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ–oink yum๐Ÿฅ“

    1. That’s swell, Elle ๐Ÿ˜Ž
      I’m sure Clifton had a big influence
      on Bob Dylan’s later recordings, up
      till he manifested his inner crooner.
      Just don’t tell Clifton I’ve played
      around with his lyrics ๐Ÿคซ ๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ


      1. ๐ŸŽถThe security guards
        they threw a party
        at the Quarantine Hotel
        The virus testers
        and contact tracers
        they began to wail
        Perhaps Chairman Dan
        should be going to jail
        For the Australian Army
        he refused to use
        He should be singing
        them Jailhouse Blues ๐ŸŽถ
